Stanley boss James Beattie has been nominated for the SkyBet League Two Manager of the Month award for November.

It was a good month for the Reds, with Beattie’s side beating Scunthorpe United, Torquay United and Fleetwood Town and drawing with Wycombe Wanderers to climb out of the relegation places.

Beattie is up against Southend United manager Phil Brown, Burton boss Gary Rowett and the Bristol Rovers manager John Ward for the prize.

The winner will be announced on Friday, with a panel including ex-Charlton boss Alan Curbishley and former Wolves striker Don Goodman making the final decision.

This is the second consecutive month that has seen Beattie nominated.
